Casamigos Tequila Prices

Why would you display your wines and spirits bottles at home for everyone to see? Showing off aside, it’s mainly because we take pride in our collections.

We would probably become doubly proud if a celebrity represents the bottle we drink. And no, we’re not talking about Casamigos Tequilacelebrities starring in commercials but actually owning the company. This is exactly the case of George Clooney’s Casamigo Tequila.

Brief Background of Casamigos Tequila

The company was founded in 2013 by George Clooney, Randy Gerber, and Mike Meldman who are long-time friends. The name was derived from the property co-owned by Clooney and Gerber called ‘House of Friends’, which can be translated into Spanish words Casa and Amigos or Casamigos.

George and Randy were both building their own homes at that time with Mike Meldman as the developer so they agreed to have a tequila drinking spree. Realizing that they haven’t tasted the best yet, they both agreed to create their own.

It was said that Clooney and Gerber had spent a couple of years trying to create the perfect tequila and another two years tasting it. Their friends loved the finished product that they ended up ordering 1,000 bottles per year from their distillery.

Because of this, the pair were told that they would need a license if they want to continue ordering bottles. This is at this point that they decided to launch the brand commercially with the help of their friend Mike Meldman who is a property developer.

After four years, Diageo purchased the company for a whopping $1 billion, with Clooney and Gerber being allowed to retain active positions in the company.

The Variants

Casamigos Tequila is concocted from pure Blue Weber agaves that are roasted for 72 hours in brick ovens. After this, the liquor is fermented for 80 hours until it reached its refined and one-of-a-kind taste.

It’s most popular variants are Blanco and Reposado, but there is a third one which is called Añejo.

Casamigos Reposado

Reposado is the type of tequila that you’d want to sip straight. Compared to other Casamigo variants, you can taste more combinations of flavor in this with stronger notes of the sweet and spiced barrel. Additional tastes include smoked peanut shells with notes of vanilla maple.

Ready your nose with the creamy scent of vanilla, corn, and a little bit of powdered sugar. Its color is pale gold. The ABV is 40% and aged for 7 months.

Casamigos Blanco

If you prefer drinking light, you can definitely love Casamigos Blanco. This makes it perfect for different cocktails. Unlike Reposado, Blanco appears colorless, but its aroma and taste won’t disappoint you. Its ABV is also 40% but aged less at two months.

Upon uncapping, be welcomed by pleasant alcohol vapors which will be followed by the hint of eucalyptus, lime zest, fennel, freshly cut grass, and black pepper. In terms of taste, Blanco has a slight oil texture with herbal hints.

It gradually shifts to notes of pepper which makes it a bit spicy. But towards the end, it has a strong sweet and citrusy taste that wipes away the spice.

Casamigos Añejo

If you feel that the Reposado’s too many flavor combinations are too much for you, you can find relief in Casamigos Añejo. The prolonged aging in oak barrels makes this possible and improved its taste for some who prefer a substitute to their whiskey.

Its color in the bottle is a somewhat pale rose. It’s ABV is the same as the other two variants at 40% but Añejo is aged much longer for 14 months in American Oak barrels.

When it comes to aroma, Añejo is considered the best among Casamigos’ three variants in terms of richness. There is less of the agave notes and more on the sweetness of honey with hints of tobacco, vanilla, and orange creamsicle. The taste is also very different in the sense that it’s almost similar to scotch, again, with its sweet tobacco and vanilla taste.
